Help..Can't boot and forgot bios password

\015 Dell Inspiron 2650 ..Can not boot from corrupted hard drive. Do not have Bios password to change boot sequence to reinstall OS. \011\011\015\012 I had read that removing the battery could do more harm. So I contacted Dell first. Gave them the service tag number and they gave me 2 back door codes to try, neither worked. Dell told me that the code if requested would be part of the motherboard,and that they suggested that a new board be installed. At this time, pulling the battery seems like a good thing to try. Where would I find it on the board? \015

Answers :

If you can get to the CMOS battery, there should be a set of jumpers close by that should say Clear CMOS or CMOS reset, or something to that effect. There are usually 3 pins, and the jumper is between 2 of them. Remove the jumper and put back over the pin that was open, and the pin next to it that was jumped before. Leave it for a few seconds, then put back to original position. This should clear the bios, and all you in.
